Nobel Prize Predictions

Thomson Scientific suggests a Nobel for international trade theory might be due, shared by Bhagwati, Dixit, and Krugman. That’s one of three possibilities listed at their online poll.

A Tullock-Krueger award for work on rent-seeking wasn’t floated as an option. I’ve seen folks like Bryan Caplan and Barkley Rosser suggest that prize combination, but I don’t know the profession well enough to say if it’s a good prediction.
